A considerably smaller BC speed limit cash grab

Published August 31st, 2015

I could have ended up paying nearly $1700, but ended up saving over $1130. While I may still have some problems with our speed limits and how they’re devised, I really can’t complain about the outcome of my excessive speeding ticket. Who knew politeness, preparation and a little mea culpa could get you so far?

Briefly About


My passions are animals, health and fitness (and my family first); I'm a cyclist and runner at heart. A lot of what ends up on this site pertains to those things. I gravitate to things that are grounded, pragmatic, logical, accessible and free from dogma. Beyond that, I'm a Higher Education web monkey. Many years ago I used to play drums and work in technical theatre. I still do the former (though not organized, as in, part of a band at this time), while my theatre days are long, long behind me.
